Place – Daily Prompt

Do you have a favorite place you have visited? Where is it?

Daily Prompt

This morning I posted a poem about the Midwest at Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin.

I have thought more about PLACE today, and how the Psalms and prayer are a place of peace for me.

Then I thought about authors and books. Two examples are:

Jan Karon and her Mitford novels – books to reread. Wonderful characters, stories, and a sense of place.

 Tracy Balzer and her book, A Journey of Sea and Stone: How Holy Places Guide and Renew Us. I plan to reread this thoughtful book.

Grateful for Books and Blogs

Good to read many good books.

Sites you may wish to visit – I turn to their art for hope and encouragement, and I admire their craft.

Photos, Memories, New Poems

the field on the way home
from my mother’s home
years and years ago
gave me strength

I will love thee, O LORD, my strength.

Psalm 18: 1

My poem is from a new sequence at Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin:
August days go by.

Another idea is a haiku or two – perhaps writing prompts for a poetry lesson. With a general beginning, writers can add their own images and reflections. I was viewing photos at the WordPress.com free photo library.
